Nana Akufo-Addo -Ghana’s presidential candidate on the BBC’s HARDTalk…

I love HARDtalk, it’s a very grown up show!!! Intelligent, transparent and demanding -HARDtalk takes no prisoners and dares to asks the questions we all want to know and most politicians dread. Plus, it recognises and exposes *excrement* in its wake.

The Nana Akufo-Addo interview -as its now known, is a real eye opener -and continues to grip -Ghana, with many still expressing their views (google)!!!!!

Good, bad or ugly Nana Akufo-Addo has been laid bare and its all so very interesting. I know how I feel about this errrrrrrrrrrm interview but will on this occasion reserve my judgement and say only ……I look forward to finding out how Nana Akufo-Addo the NPP (New Patriotic Party)’s presidential candidate for Ghana (and his government) propose to finance free secondary school education in Ghana -and most importantly (for me -anyways) -how they intend to implement it -and get all parents to send their children to these ‘free’ schools?

Will the money be raised via Taxes? If so, who will they taxed? Will the ‘Bofrot’ sellers at Kumasi market and cashiers at Stanbic Bank in Accra -pay the same amount of taxes -say? Also, who will be in charge of collecting said taxes -and how would the Ghanaian public know that these tax collectors are collecting on behalf of the Ghanaian government -and not the SAKAWA MONEY SHARK MAFIA???

Will we [the people of Ghana] then, …like in the UK, … be told how much the government has collected? How much they’ll be spending on schools, roads, hospitals, medical aid -say? How much they intend to pay themselves etc etc -or are we in Ghana like most of the third world -just playing government??

I don’t know? I don't know ……… -if only he had answered some of those questions!!!! I don’t know????? Also, it would be good to know the degree in which he intends to let the Chinese into the Ghanaian economy??? You can watch said interview via the BBC at:
